pacific orca



Swire Blue Ocean’s wind turbine installation vessel (WTIV) Pacific Orca has installed the twenty-fourth out of fifty-six turbines at the 336MW Galloper offshore wind farm off the coast of Suffolk.
The vessel installed the first turbine at the site on 16 May 2017. Earlier this month, Fred. Olsen Windcarrier’s Bold Tern also joined the project to help out with the works and ensure a timely completion. The offshore wind farm is expected to be completed late this year and to be commissioned in early 2018.

Living stone



Belgium’s DEME Group has attempted to take possession of the advanced cable lay vessel Living Stone, currently under construction at the financially troubled LaNaval shipyard in Bilbao, Spain, and tow the vessel to another location where the construction could be completed.
On the night of Wednesday, 20 September, DEME sent a team of people and two tugboats to the shipyard to unmoor the vessel and tow it to another location. The shipyard’s security guards notified the local police who prevented the vessel, built for DEME’s subsidiary Tideway, from being towed from the shipyard.

svanen



Van Oord’s heavy lift vessel Svanen is currently installing monopile foundations on the 385MW Arkona offshore wind farm in the German Baltic Sea. E.ON and Statoil have organised a ceremony at Mukran Port in Sassnitz to mark the start of offshore construction works. The monopile foundations were delivered by EEW Special Pipe Constructions, while the transition pieces were produced by Bladt Industries. The first transition pieces arrived at the Mukran Port in August. The 385MW Arkona wind farm, a joint venture between E.ON and Statoil, is located 35 kilometres north-east of the island of Rügen. The wind farm will comprise 60 Siemens 6MW turbines scheduled for commissioning in 2019.

tURBINE TRIUMPH AT BLYTH

The first of the five wind turbines has been installed at EDF’s Blyth Offshore Demonstrator Project. Jan De Nul mobilised its vessel Vole au Vent to execute turbine in-stallation last week with all five V164-8.0MW turbines scheduled to be in place by the end of the month. Blyth is one of the first projects in the world to utilise these giant turbines. Each blade is 80m long, the equivalent of nine double decker London buses and weigh 35 tonnes. The 41.5MW project’s role is to test and prove new offshore installation methods and technologies including 66kV array cabling and ‘float and submerge’ gravity-base foundation installation. With foundations installed and cable laying complete, the project is on track to be fully operational by the end of the year.

cRITERIA IS OUT OF DUTCH WIND TENDERS

Offshore wind farm developers are all ears as the criteria for ranking the zero bids for the upcoming Hollandse Kust Zuid Sites I&II tender have been published by the Nether-lands Ministry of Economic Affairs. The document sets out six main criteria to evaluate the bids; the knowledge and experience of parties involved, quality of design, wind farm capacity, social costs, quality of risk analysis and cost efficiency. Applications will be ranked on the basis of the tabulated preliminary criteria, whereby the highest scoring application will be awarded the license. The Dutch Government has requested that interested parties state their views on the draft table by 22nd Sep-tember. The tender is then to be published in early October with application submissions scheduled for December 2017.

oNE TURBINE TO GO AT WIKINGER


The last wind turbine is going up at the 350MW Wikinger offshore wind farm. Located in the Baltic Sea, near the Island of Rügen, Wikinger is Iberdrola’s first offshore wind project in Germany. Fred. Olsen Wind Carrier's jack-up installation vessel Brave Tern has been on site since January to complete installation of the 70 Adwen AD5-135 turbines. Over this period the turbine components have been transported from the Port of Sassnitz-Mukran and installed in three parts; tower, nacelle and rotor star. Originally anticipated during Q3 2017, first power from the project is expected imminently with full export by the end of 2017. Once commissioned, the €1.4bn Wikinger project will produce enough electricity to meet the demands of 350,000 German households annually.

DANES INSTALL INNOVATIVE FOUNDATIONS

Major milestone for the 28MW Nissum Bredning Vind project as installation of the innovative gravity-jacket foundations gets underway. Designed by Siemens, the new concept incorporates a prefabricated jacket sup-porting a concrete gravity-base section and transition piece. Navantia-Windar JV were subcontracted to supply the four 3-legged jacket foundations and piles. Now onsite, Per Aarsleff A/S has commenced hammering the 70-foot piles and installing the jackets using the Mammoet 11350 crane. The Danish Energy Agency believes that the foundations will show a positive impact on the Levelized Cost of Electricity. Further material saving technologies are being used, including a slender tower concept espe-cially suited for jacket foundations and 66kV cabling.

ADWEN TURBIN MODEL ABANDONED

Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) and subsidiary Adwen have announced that Adwen’s AD8 wind turbine has been discontinued as SGRE concentrate future commercial efforts on a single 8MW platform. SGRE will now supply its 8MW D8 turbine to replace the AD8 model at the Yeu-Noirmoutier and Dieppe-Le Tréport offshore wind projects. Ailes Marines are also going through the motions to gain consent for the same change in turbine model for its Bay of Saint-Brieuc pro-ject. According to Ailes Marines the change will not alter the development timeline of the project or affect any major technical features. SGRE has confirmed that it will still build the two Adwen factories in Le Havre but these will now be used to build Siemens turbines.

FRENCH FLOATING PROGRESS

The finish line is now in sight for French floating project, Floatgen, with turbine installation expected in the coming days and according to the team at Ideol, they are set to celebrate the ‘inauguration and baptism’ of the project on the 13th of October. The structure will then be towed out to sea shortly afterwards depending on weather windows. The ring-shaped concrete floating foundation, was launched last month at the Saint-Nazaire harbour and will shortly boast a Vestas V80-2.0MW turbine. IDEOL will then install their floating foundation 12 miles off the coast of Le Croisic. Floatgen aims to demonstrate the technical and economic feasibility of the floating concept designed by IDEOL and is expected to be completed by the end of 2017.
